Alright, the next Seattle Meetup will be on Saturday, February 22 at Cafe Mox (http://www.cafemox.com/) from 1pm - 6pm(ish) for board games, drinks and nerdy fun!  We will have the Red Room reserved (and possibly both rooms if we get more interest).  Any and all are welcome, our list of confirmed people is as follows:

 

Confirmed:
Photobrandon
Crazymags + husband
MeaganMaria

Maybe:
Jonesy

TheKingofLame

Bear/Brometheus

 

List will be updated as any other people confirm they are coming.  After 4 more I'll reserve the second room, so we have space in case of any surprise attendees or last minute peoples wanting to come.  I'd rather have too much room than have to turn someone away.

We still have time to get the room(s) for earlier as well if we wanted more time, but another group has both rooms from 7pm onwards.

 

If anyone has any game requests let me know.  Not many games support quite as many people as are already coming, so we will likely have a few different ones running at the same time.  I'll post rule PDF's for some of the likely contenders as we get closer to the event, for those who like to read up on things like that ahead of time.

Let me know if anyone has any questions.  Or if anyone wants to pitch in and help organize.




Original Message: Well, the last meetup we had here was back in August, I think it might be time for another one.  I was thinking either the last weekend of February or the first weekend of March, to be in between the big Dallas Meetup in January and Emerald City Comicon at the end of March.

I've attached a poll as to which day works best for people, and it should be possible to pick multiple days if more than one option will work for you.

As for the event, I was thinking of renting a room (or two, depending on interest) at Cafe Mox and nerding it up with some board games!  http://www.cafemox.com/rooms/  Pretty low key I know, but I like low key =)  Open to other ideas if anyone has something better.

If we do go with Cafe Mox we'll likely need to have a date picked out by the beginning of January, since they tend to book up pretty far out.  I look forward to seeing what everyone thinks!

Oh they have shelves of games free for any customer to use.  We'll be all set on that front =)  Also a good place to visit if you just wanted to check out a new game.  Sit down, order a hard cider, and pick a game off the shelves to play!

We are up for that any time!!!

Clawed_bear I'm sure we'd be able to meet the $100 tab even if it were just the 5 of us, and hopefully more people will be able to come! :)

Also, I could possibly be interested in a Seattle meet-up... but I don't know what date would work for me, so don't take me into account :P

Ok, looks like Saturday, February 22nd is the day.  It appears someone has both rooms reserved from 7pm on, so for now I'll reserve from 1pm-6: whatever time they kick us out for the next group.  I will update the first post with this info as well.

So far in attendance we will have:

Photobrandon + wife
Crazymags + husband
MeaganMaria
Clawed_Bear
Jonesy

With at least 3 other maybes that responded in this thread.  I'll reserve the Red room for now (up to 12 people) but if we get much more interest I'll grab the other room as well.  If anyone above is bringing any additional peoples let me know as well.  Also if anyone coming is under 21 please let me know, since that will determine the alcohol policies with the rental

Things can change but I might not make it on Feb. 22 or might not be able to stay for the whole thing. :) My step sister just moved in with my parents so we might have a bday celebration dinner that night for her.

Wow how time flies!  How is this already less than a week away?  Anyways, this is still on, but it seems like we've had a reduction in number of people coming.  Part of me wants to cancel the venue and just host this at my place, but going to keep it for now.  If anyone has any updates on whether they are still coming or not that'd be helpful.  No need to stay the whole time either.  Would really love to meet some of the nerds in the area I've not met yet, even if its brief =)

Also, not sure what weather will be like, extended forecast looks ok, who'd be up for frisbee in the park or something beforehand?  I took some time off of work this coming weekend for this and some other stuff (first hike of the Season with the wife on Sunday), so I've got all day.

If anyone needs any more information on anything please ask here, or PM me.  Feel free to PM me for my number as well, if you'd like it for day of reasons or whatnot.

Look forward to seeing you all soon!

Brandon
